4th Yr: ENT

ahhh ..ENT ... the most dreaded and lethal subject in 4th year.....ENT is not as scary as it is made out to be... the only book u have to learn by heart is DHEINGRA... ENT has 2 units ... with Dr Azhar hameed being the head of UNIT1 and Dr Mansoor Baseer Pal the head of UNIT2.... u have UNIT 2 class every other thursday as first lecture ... BE ON TIME..DONOT MARK PROXIES and make sure u get to attend almost all the classes... the Unit 1 class ... every other wed... as the year goes by u will get to know .. has pretty much flexible attendence pattern *winks*... if u get to have UNIT 1 as ur ward u r in luck....and if not ... then i m afraid there is no better way to put it in words then U R SCREWED.... i had my ENT in the start of the year ... had sadly unit 2... passed the entire month doing nth and wasting time... then got our ward test delayed.. then delayed AGAIN the next month ... then the next one as well and ended up giving the ward test after summer break... golden advice to all the ENT 2 ward batches "DONT GET UR WARD TEST DELAYED" .. u lll end up giving it with a worst prep afterwards anyway.... so y not give it on time.... Unit 2 walas will have to do all the learning themselves... unlike the unit 1 walas who get everything served in a nice platable platter .... for unit 2 batches i m afraid its the bitter reality of a month of frustration.... dont waste time in wards *which we ofcourse did* ... make use of it .. go take histories.,... examine patients... see instruments in O.T... see the SHORT CASE VIDEO of dr pal available from kemcana and make use of it in O.P.D...... unit 2 ward test doesnt require any history copies or ENT assignments like the unit 1 ward test does... but u do need to make them for final proff vivas....

  1. well i disagree a little as i too was in unit 2 and had attended unit 1 class as well and i believed learning in unit 2 is more than unit 1 regarding bed side training as i remember all of our badge used to stand behind Dr. nukhbat while he was examining the patient in OPD and we all peeping into it. truly unit 1 ppl are very much into theoratical things . so its all personal choice what u like and what u prefer...cheers

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266



Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.


 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
